It really depends on how you define 'best'. If you mean a gaming rig them about 5K for top of the line everything.

AMD X2 4800+
SLI or Crossfire graphics solution
2GB overclocking memory
water cooling
a massive 2TB RAID array
19" LCD
5.1 surround sound

If you want a server you could easily spend 10K or more on opterons and 8gigs of ram ect.

Getting so many parts into your computer might not be a good idea because of the overheating, if you want a good usable computer that you cna bring to lan parties, 5K should get you the latest everything.

You can actually save ALOT money if you just used headphones instead of a 200 dollar speaker system and also save couple hundred on the sound card. SCSI HDs are good, but any Raid drive under 200 dollars is just as good if all you're doing is gaming. You can get cases that come with water cooling for like 300 dollars.

No you wouldnt. For a nice set of headphones, you would actually spend $200 or more. Take for example the Grado SR-225:

Or the sennheiser HD600:
http://www.shipdog.com/product.asp?i...bber&sku=HD600
Or if you really have some money burning a hole in your pocket:

Head over to head-fi.org if you ever want to know more about high-end headphones.
